Create World

NOTE! Remember that the higher chunk size, large Frequency number, large number of generated objects will reduce performance of the game.

How to create world in Cube Alchemy: Game World Maker?Pic. 1 Create World

Put the name of your world and random seed number at the corresponding fields. Select chunk size - from 5 to 35 blocks per chunk.

Frequency and Amplitude

The lower is FREQUENCY number the wider the foot of mountains will be, and vice versa, the larger FREQUENCY number the narrower mountain will be and the more of mountains will be created on the map. The lower the AMPLITUDE number, the lower the height of the hills and vice versa. Roughly speaking, an AMPLITUDE of 0 will generate almost flat terrain.

Generated objects

Use slider to change the quantity of generated objects. By default game will generate trees, flowers, enemies, physic objects, animals and so on but you can uncheck corresponding checkboxes and for example remove enemies from your world.

Set Time of the Day

You can change day time to Day & Night, Evening or Morning all the time, set Night only or Daytime only by selecting the appropriate item in the drop-down menu in Create World section (pic. 1).

Endless and Limited Worlds

You can uncheck Endless World checkbox and create a world limited to a few chunks. It's could be useful if you want to create game world/level where player should find some stuff on limited space. Or, for example, you found some area with a beautiful landscape on the generated map and you want to use it in your level with a limited world - in this case, you can safely use this function of limiting the world. You can change world's parameters any time in Share/Options section or change this value when you will publish your game project.
NOTE! In Endless World players will spawn at the point where you was saved your level and in the Limited World players will be spawned at zero point, that is, in the middle of the generated map.

Damages and Auto Damage

You can mark Damages checkbox to allow enemies to hurt player. If you want the player to be affected by hunger you should mark Auto Damage checkbox. Set Damage per Hit value using corresponding slider, the more to the left the slider the lower the level of damage.

Generate Water / Lava World

Mark Generate Water checkbox and player will be spawned right above the water. To create world full of lava just mark Lava World checkbox.

NOTE! Remember that Game World Maker will save your world locally. To publish your world to the server you will need to share your world/level from Load Section or from Share/Options menu.

Basic things

Cube Alchemy: Game World Maker - Editor ModePic. 2 Editor Mode

There are two basic game modes in Cube Alchemy: Game World Maker. First of all it's Editor Mode (pic. 2) where you have unlimited possibilities. It's like God Mode or Creative Mode in any game you know. You may easily build skyscraper in one click or create hundreads of any objects. Here you can set your own game rules using Interactive Game Elements. Any changes (for example, setting daytime or damages) you doing in Options/Share panel (pic. 7) or Share Options (pic. 8) will be saved as rules for your game world.

Game ModePic. 3 Game Mode

In Game Mode (pic. 3) you have limited options, the panels with objects will be hidden, damages can be enabled in the game, you can't easily delete blocks only by clicking mouse like it was in Editor. Now you need to create or find some equipment or do something to win the game. If it was allowed by you or other game's author you could use save button in game mode to save progress.

Survival Levels

You can play Survival levels by choosing them from Templates menu or create it itself. In Survival mode you have only one goal to... survive! Look for tools (or craft it) to get resources, search for food to replenish health, destroy enemies, create buildings. You have Small Pouch (pic. 4) for storing mined and gathered resources, can create an Amulet to protect your buildings from Monster Heads or surround the house with water which also destroys game enemies.

Basic of Survival

1. Find or craft tool to get resources. Your first and very basic tool is stick and it can be found in mushrooms. Stick cannot be crafted. Wooden pickaxe can be crafted and found by destroying little spruce. Diamond pickaxe destroy any block in game.
2. Game enemies - Monster Heads - is afraid of water so you can surround your house with blocks of water and they will be destroyed by it. You can beat Monster Heads with any of tools - from simple stick to portal gun or even flashlight.
3. Collect food to increase your health points. You can eat plenty of foods in game - mushrooms, flowers, grass, little cherries, etc. Also you can plant apple tree and it will give you a lot of food.
4. Create Amulet and it will defend you from enemies. It will stop spawining enemies within a 30 blocks radius as long as it is on the map. As soon as the amulet is removed or hidden in the Small Pouch, the spawn of enemies will resume.
5. On the map you can find Changer Entities. They exchange the items given to them for random things. Thus, you can exchange a regular stick for something of value, such as a portal gun or amulet.
